If you love to read and write, a major in English literature gives you a chance to do both.
Character and motivation, relationships between people, ethical problems, history, cultural conflict—literature gives you a chance to study all these and more.
Courses in fiction, poetry, and drama help you to develop your ability to think deeply and carefully and to express yourself effectively. If you need an outlet to express your ideas and explore emotions, the creative writing program will help you do this.
After you graduate, you may find yourself getting paid to do what many people can’t—communicate well.
English literature and creative writing at Randolph College teach you the power of words.
